So I just made it past 2k rep, and I've been reviewing some edits.

Once, one of my suggested edits was rejected because it apparently

Failed to correct critical issues with the post

I found a suggested edit that deserved that marking, but I was unable to find that reason in the list.

Am I missing something here?

    Yes, custom reasons. – Mark Kirby Jun 3 '16 at 21:45
  • @MarkKirby - OK.... but the only box that allows for custom reasons is "This edit causes harm" – Android Dev Jun 3 '16 at 23:03
  • They changed the reasons recently, the thinking being if it fails to correct critical issues the reviewer will fix them with the "accept and edit" or "reject and edit" buttons. – Seth Jun 4 '16 at 1:14
  • @Seth - Would you please add that as an answer, also mentioning MarkKirby's comment? – Android Dev Jun 4 '16 at 1:23
  • @AndroidDev For me the box says "Describe how this edit would make the post worse" but you can just put anything you like in. – Mark Kirby Jun 4 '16 at 8:09

They changed the reject reasons recently, the thinking being if it fails to correct critical issues the reviewer will fix them with the "accept and edit" or "reject and edit" buttons.
